Residents in the Canyon Fire burn area are asked to remain vigilant, stay alert, and monitor information sources. Those living in this area should follow city information and think about what to do should they be asked to leave their homes. 

Officials will provide a warning if possible but may only be able to alert the public with just a few minutes notice for future evacuations. It is critical that you remain vigilant and take personal responsibility for your surroundings. To learn more about winter preparedness, click here.
